Saloon
(This Is) What We Call Progress (Darla Records)

By: Alex Steininger

Saloon's (This Is) What We Call Progress is a laid-back, easy-going indie-pop record, ten songs that lean on rock, but don't rely on it, driven by the intoxicatingly beautiful voice of the front woman. The songs hover below the radar, too unpolished to really hook you, yet too melodic to bypass you altogether. Instead, you listen attentively, taking in the texture, the layers, the interplay between band, voice and lyrics, and a formula that shines nearly flawlessness for a short fifty-four minutes. I'll give it a B+.
